SFI DISCOVER PROGRAMME CALL 2017

The purpose of the Science Foundation Ireland Call is to support projects that encourage people of all ages and from all walks of life to be informed, inspired and involved in STEM.

Applications must clearly outline how the project will address Science Foundation Ireland’s goal to have an engaged and scientifically informed public in Ireland.  An engaged public feels confident to:

  • understand the role of STEM in our lives
  • can judge between competing STEM arguments / engage in informed debate on STEM issues
  • encourage young people to study and work in STEM
  • feels engaged with STEM research

Projects should address this by showing how they:

  • promote and support STEM education
  • promote STEM career pathways
  • increase the general public’s engagement with STEM and its importance in society
